As one of the primary ministries of the Anglican Church in North America, Anglican 1000 has grown immensely since its inception in 2009. Following Archbishop Duncan’s prophetic call for 1000 new congregations during his investiture, more than 200 new works have been planted, many with the assistance and support of Anglican 1000.
Canon David Roseberry, along with the Rev. Daniel Adkinson and other key leaders have helped to grow Anglican 1000 into a collaborative effort by rectors, bishops, dioceses, networks and others who are embracing the call to plant churches.
As with any new ministry, the time has come to move to the next phase in order to expand upon God’s call to spread His Church. Working towards this next phase, the central leadership role and office of Anglican 1000 is moving to the Provincial office located just outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
This new role, the Vicar (Provincial Director) for Anglican 1000, will be the “provincial catalyst for making church planting the central enterprise of the Anglican Church in North America” explained Archbishop Duncan.
Archbishop Duncan’s closing message at the 2012 Anglican 1000 Church Planting Summit addressed the history of the church, spiritual warfare, remaining a movement, and “reaching 1000.” Click here to hear audio of his address.
The Vicar will serve Anglican 1000 in raising up an ever-increasing number of Anglican congregations and communities of faith to reach the men, women and children of North America with the transforming love of Jesus Christ.

Please join us in praying for this vital new phase in the life of the Anglican 1000 movement.
